Travis Scott gave further proof on his standing for being a bit controling this New Year’s weekend when he kicked a DJ off the stage while he was at Montreal’s New City Gas nightclub on December 31.
A clip posted to YouTube shows the 24-year-old rapper speaking to the DJ, saying “Just play a song you fucking moron.”
When the DJ finally puts a track on, Scott had lost his cool and announced to the crowd “The worst DJ in Montreal is right there on stage, yo. The best rapper in the world is on stage right now though.”
After the DJ apparently hit the wrong button and stopped a beat, Scott sent him for an early shower, saying “Get off the stage, please. This fucking trash-ass DJ is fucking up everything I’m doing right now and it’s pissing me off.”
Scott then took over on the set, hopping behind the decks and playing the track for “Antidote” — pausing once more when the DJ tried to get back on stage. The rapper-turned-DJ scratched the record wildly and screamed “Montreal!” into the mic.
Fans became disgruntled after Travis stopped performing after just four songs, but Scott himself tweeted that he didn’t think the event had been advertised as a full-length concert.
In a now-deleted tweet, Scott wrote “Montreal that was amazing. Sorry my set was short that’s all I was asked. Didn’t know this was a show. We were told it was a club.”
Fortunately he did leave up a tweet that reassured his Montreal fans that he’d be back soon.
